CAPE was established by two Edmonton women, who care deeply about supporting other women. Bound together by a passion for supporting health and wellness within our community, CAPE was founded to support women facing barriers to healthcare, to connect to their Primary Care Network, and be informed about the options and opportunities available to themselves.
CAPE is a women-only healthcare opportunity that explores conversations around family planning, while supporting you to make informed decisions about your health and your body.
We provide FREE IUD insertions for any woman who does not have the funding or financial resources to afford one. We also provide free IUD removal. You do not need to have a copy of your Alberta Health Care card with you, nor do you need to have a mailing address.
We believe every woman has the right to decide when she wants to have her family...in her time.
This safe and effective procedure usually takes less than 5 minutes. An IUD gives you the choice of when and if you wish to become pregnant. Depending on which IUD is the best fit for you, you may choose to not become pregnant for up to 5 years.
Our doctor has several years of IUD insertion experience and all of our staff are committed to the best outcome and future of our patients.
If you want safe, effective, long lasting contraception, an IUD may be a good choice for you if any of the following are true for you:
You worry about where to keep birth control pills
You worry about being able to renew a birth control prescription
You find it hard to remember to take a birth control pill at the same time every day
You worry about the hormones in birth control pills
You don't always have the option of using a condom
You want to control or eliminate painful or heavy periods
You want easily reversible birth control that will not harm your future fertility
We are located on Jasper Avenue in the heart of downtown Edmonton.
We are unable to provide other ob-gyn services, such as oral contraceptives, pregnancy terminations or pre-natal care. We can provide referrals to these services as needed.
